Annual Exhibition

Pershore Arts members made a welcome return to the walls of the Foyer at Number 8 Community Arts Centre for their Annual Exhibition in November. During Lockdown, some had made brave ‘new beginnings’, using the time to experiment with new themes, new materials, and new techniques. Others, who struggled to be productive in those alarming months, made a new start as life began to return to normal. Visitors obviously enjoyed our work, and we were rewarded with record sales of 7 artworks. The Foyer has been booked for our Annual Exhibition in November 2022.

The Gallery, Pershore High Street

You can find a wide selection of work by Jilly Oxlade-Arnott and guest artists who best represent the Gallery’s ethos of Colour, Craftmanship and Creativity. Husband and wife team Chris and Jilly ensure artists get a realistic and fair price for their work, which also provides great value to buyers. The Gallery is open from Wednesday to Saturday, 10am – 6pm, and on Sunday from 10am – 4pm. You might just find the elusive ‘perfect gift’ for a loved one!

Photography Group

now meets at Number 8 at 7.45pm on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Our photo group mentor, Geoff Hodgson, studied photography to Masters Degree level and exhibits his work extensively, including the Royal Academy Summer Show. His photographs are held in private collections across the world, and he has lots of experience and knowledge to share.

We are not charged by Number 8 for the meeting space, so do consider buying a drink at the bar. While you are there, you can enjoy and discuss the current exhibition on the walls of the Foyer. Bring some prints of your recent work to share and discuss if you can. Open to all members of Pershore Arts. See our Calendar for meeting dates – further details for each meeting may be added from time to time.
